Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
fa la la la la, la la la la
One of the fun things about Christmas is the ability to decorate our houses and fully embrace the insanity that is the festive season. Whether you like to go crazy or take a more modest approach, we have been searching for great products to help you along the way.
Baubles filled with Chocolate!
This year you can hang, not just individually wrapped chocolate or coins on your tree, but now you can pop a bauble filled with delicious dairy milk creations too.
New for 2015 from Cadbury, the super sized baubles come in two flavours and each are as delectable as the other, there is sure to be one that takes your fancy.
Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Bauble
The lovely balls of Dairy Milk are filled with a vanilla cream and crunchy biscuit pieces, giving you the wonderful flavour of Oreo cookies combined with the spectacular creamy Dairy Milk.

Snow Bites are Dairy Milk chocolate balls wrapped in a crispy sugar shell and then dusted with icing sugar for that perfect snowy look!
Both are available from £4.99
Lip Smacker Christmas Ornament Gift Sets
This Christmas make sure that the beauty lover in your life has a decoration on the tree with a little difference. How about a bauble that is filled with four fabulous Lip Smacker flavoured lip balms! Of course being Lip Smacker they aren’t just your ordinary lip balm flavours, oh no, they are super yummy and sure to please everyone.
Chose from the Coca Cola Collection that features Coca Cola, Sprite, Vanilla Coca Cola and Fanta flavours or maybe the Best Flavour Forever Collection would be more fitting with flavour such as Cocoa Snowflake Holiday Punch, Caramel Cider and Peppermint Frappe. Of course you could also pick the spectacularly wintry set that has a Frozen theme or the wonderful Chupa Chups which include Raspberry, Vanilla, Strawberry Cream and Apple.
Whichever you decide to pick up for your tree, you wont be disappointed! Available from Claire’s Accessories for just £6.99 each
Of course decorating our homes at Christmas is not limited to tree decorations or even ones we put on the wall. A big part of how our room gains atmosphere this time of year, is in no small part to the present wrapped under the tree.
A really different way to approach wrapping your gifts this year is to use the service wrap.me to create unique, individual festive wrapping paper using your very own images from social media!
Our only advice is to make sure you pick images that are the same size, other than that go crazy and start creating wrapping paper from as little as £4.99.
Thought to harp back to Biblical times, Saint Nicholas to be precise, the tradition of giving chocolate coins stems from Saint Nicholas giving coins to children. It is said he was so shy that one day he climbed upon a roof and poured coins down the chimney, they in turn fell and some landed in stockings that a child had hung at the fireplace to dry.
We, of course, love to put chocolate coins on the tree and in stockings every year. You can pick up some delicious milk chocolate coins from Whittard of Chelsea, presented in a lovely golden gift bag, to add a touch of luxury.

Christmas is not Christmas without some festive cards hanging on the wall. We all love to send cards to loved ones and acquaintances, it is a way to let people know you car and are thinking of them during the holiday season.
